HCX merged efforts with many other individuals and organizations to protest racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. HCX held a poster and banner making session the day before, and on the day of, we met up with Kriyol Dance! musicians and activist Rara band djaRARA to travel to the rally together in solidarity!

HCX facilitated performances by Gina Athena Ulysse and Jeffrey Dessources (MRJEFFDESS), calling to action attendees and the arts culture community. Find pictures of the event here.

In efforts to continue the conversation and ensure that our efforts are not just reactionary but result in longer term possibilities for collective action, below we have sourced a list of upcoming actions, relevant news articles, and resources to help. Please contact us to contribute to this list.
